"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." - Chinese proverb
Amanda Bowman joins the NCSH team after teaching middle school for eleven years at the New York City Department of Education. Her beliefs are firmly centered around the twin pillars of academic rigor and social-emotional support, both of which are essential to promote the very best that young people have to offer. Throughout her career, Ms. Bowman’s commitment to ensuring success for all students has included spearheading school-wide initiatives, leading a middle school team, and even writing published curriculum for eighth grade social studies. Ms. Bowman is excited to bring her passion for adolescent education and development to NCSH and to help fortify the school’s achievements as NCSH expands.
